The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. An Artificial Myocardium for Pediatric Support

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The ultimate objective of this proposed program is the commercialization of a neonate ventricular assist device (VAD). Although VADs, both implantable and paracorporeal, have become an important surgical option for adult patients with myocardial failure unresponsive to less aggressive therapy, no VADs are commercially available for short-term use in small infan ...

  2. ECM Bioscaffold for ASD Repair

    SBC: ACELL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This Phase I proposal seeks support to evaluate the feasibility of developing an extracellular matrix (ECM) biologic scaffold as a repair device for atrial septal defects (ASD). ASDs are one of the most common forms of congenital heart disease and account for approximately 30-40% of all congenital heart defects seen in adults. Closure of an ASD can be performed ...

  3. NOC- Network-on-a-Chip for Hardware-based Accelerated Simulation of Ad Hoc Mobile Communications Networks

    SBC: ACHRONIX SEMICONDUCTOR LLC            Topic: A06T008

    Large scale Wireless ad hoc networks are growing in use in both military and commercial environments. In the military environment, the Future Combat Systems (FCS) initiative will rely upon the Tactical Mobile Ad Hoc Communications Network (TMACN) for all communications between warfighters, manned and unmanned military equipment, and sensors. Simulation and performance estimation of the TMACN is ...

  4. In-Harbor/At-Sea Ship Defense

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: N04065

    Terrorists can employ small water craft, boats, submersibles and swimmers to detonate explosives along side ships, or attach devices to the hull above or below the waterline. Ship defense against “asymmetrical threat” targets such as multiple small boats in the complex littoral environment are made difficult by the limited capability of shipboard sensors to detect these targets among waves, a ...

  5. An Integrated Hardware-Software Platform for Real-Time Modeling and Simulation of TMACNs

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: A06T008

    The Army’s Future Combat System will rely on a data communications backbone based on the tactical mobile ad-hoc communications network (TMACN). The unique nature of TMACNs – their mobility, adaptability, and potentially substantial sizes – makes performance prediction a difficult task, and one that is best carried out through simulation. The team of Advanced Acoustic Concepts and RTI Interna ...

  6. Use of Adaptive, Non-line of Sight Smart Sensors to Recognize and Locate Threats to Physical Assets and Field Forces

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: N06076

    Protection of ground troops and physical assets against hostile attacks on the battlefield is a crucial capability that must be provided by a combination of sensors and automated signal processing software that can function at all times, including in low-light/no-light and non-line-of-sight conditions. Existing surveillance sensor systems lack the automated ability to detect and classify threats. ...

  7. Maritime Surveillance Sensing Using Underwater High Frequency Acoustic Communication Receivers

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM06013

    High-frequency acoustic modems are required to provide undersea communication networks to support covert surveillance operations. These modems can also be used as platforms for compact, low power surveillance sensors and processing. A natural first step would be to integrate a capability for passive acoustic detection of ships and submarines. A multi-phase effort is proposed for integrating passiv ...

  8. Directed Differentiation of Embryonic Stem Cells using Phage Displayed Ligands

    SBC: OCATA THERAPEUTICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The ability to culture human embryonic stem cells generated a great deal of excitement about their vast potential for treating a variety of human diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, neurological, retinal and skin disorders to name a few. Unlike adult stem cells, embryonic stem cells have indefinite growth potential and the potential to develop into any t ...

  9. Advanced Detection of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs)

    SBC: Advanced Design Consulting USA, Inc.            Topic: AF06113

    ADC is presenting a new method of nondestructive evaluation/inspection technology that enable the capability to detect improvised explosive devices (IEDs) carried or hidden within motor ve-hicles.

  10. Next Generation Solar Cells Based on Nanostructures

    SBC: ADVANCED DIAMOND SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: AF06274

    Advanced Diamond Solutions, Inc. proposes the development of a novel high efficiency solar cell design based on amorphous diamond nanotip thermoelectric power generation properties. Amorphous diamond has a unique set of material characteristics stemming from its combination of graphitic, diamond and carbon-nanotube structures. Amorphous diamond inherently possesses numerous discrete energy state ...
